The Welsh Rugby Union has joined with hundreds of well-wishers in offering a message of support to Owen Williams who has suffered a significant injury to his cervical vertebrae and spinal cord.
The WRU will continue to liaise closely with the Cardiff Blues whose management are in close contact with Owen, his family and medical staff in Singapore.
Williams was injured while playing in the World Club 10s competition at the weekend and has since undergone surgery to stabilise a fracture.
Williams has won four Welsh caps after making his senior international debut against Japan on the 2013 summer tour. He was also capped by Wales at U16 and U20 level and by Wales Sevens having graduated through the Blues Academy to join the Cardiff Blues senior side in 2010.
The WRU repeats the Cardiff Blues request that the privacy of Owen Williams and his family is respected at this time.
James Davies was one of three Welsh players announced in Team GB's men's sevens squad for Rio yesterday at a sweltering Trafalgar Square. WRU TV's Graeme Gillespie battles with a Japanese tour guide as 'Cubby' reveals who has made his teammate, Sam Cross, the player he is today.
Robin McBryde and son Billy are set to represent Wales on either side of the globe over the coming weeks with Robin travelling to New Zealand as Wales assistant coach and Billy competing at the World Rugby U20 Championship (Manchester, June 7-25). WRU TV caught up with the pair and captured a unique perspective into the factors that produce such a high-achieving rugby family.
Wales assistant coach Robin McBryde is predicting a tough battle against England on Sunday despite the fact they may not be considered to be at full strength. Players will be out to impress Eddie Jones which makes England a dangerous proposition, he says.
